Paul completed his practitioner training in Sao Paolo, Brazil in February 2006 after dedicated study in Salt Lake City, UT and through the Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, CO.
Dr. Ida Rolf founded the Guild for Structural Integration to educate practitioners in her life's work of soft tissue manipulation and movement education. She believed that the imbalances in structure places demands on the body's network of soft tissues: muscles, fascia, tendons, and ligaments. These demands then create compensations throughout the body's structure.
Structural Integration helps to organize the body structure in such a way that it becomes better integrated with gravity and can function in the most optimal and economical way,
"This is the gospel of Rolfing: When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itselt." - Ida P. Rolf
